Herblock - The Black & The White
Herbert L. Block looked to Ted Koppel like a "Vermont pharmacist" – not "the most feared editorial cartoonist in the country." And to Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, Block was ahead of everyone on Watergate just six days after the break-in: "We had thought it was probably a CIA operation… and did not think it was going to go to the White House. But Herb knew!"

Block started cartooning in his Chicago teens and went on to win four Pulitzer Prizes and the Presidential Medal of Freedom during 55 years at the Washington Post. He challenged the high and the mighty without fear or favor; Senator Joe McCarthy and Richard Nixon, famously, felt the sting of Herb's pen. In Block's words, it was his job to remind our public servants that "they are, after all, public servants."

Director Michael Stevens and Producer George Stevens, Jr. draw on their knowledge of the Capitol and the best minds in journalism to tell the Herbert Block tale.
